I have stayed in Riad Hikaya on both a pleasure and business level. Nothing is too much trouble for the owner, John. Arrival to any airport can be fraught, however, John provides a smooth connection from the airport through the bustling hot Moroccan streets to the unique, tranquil, and exquisitely decorated accommodation that is The Riad Hikaya. On arrival you are greeted by John, and subjected to a warm welcome, amazing home cooked foods, and drinks. The traditional mint tea is quite refreshing after a flight! Of course a good selection of other refreshments are offered also. If you can picture all this in the most delightful ambiance. Amazing lanterns which gifts the walls with such intricate patterned lighting. Sumptuous! Just when you think it could not get any better, you are delighted by the roof terrace and its heady atmosphere of Marrakech, the vast starry sky, and swathes of traditional Moroccan fabrics, all lit beautifully. The bedrooms and en-suits are rather special. Traditional skills, colours, and textures have been beautifully juxtaposed with convenience and modern living, offering a truly comfortable yet cultural experience. The streets of Marrakech are a sight to behold. It is like no other place, steeped in its traditions. When your day out has ended you are happily tired with the knowledge of returning to Riad Hikaya and all its levels of accommodation. I cannot recommend enough. Rachel Simpson
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Riad Hikaya is a luxury boutique hotel located in the royal quarter of the medina, called the 'Kasbah', and only an easy walk from the main square, Jemaa al Fnaa, and the city's other famous landmarks. It took three years of meticulous restoration by local craftsmen and artisans, employing both age old techniques and materials, to transform the riad into what it is today. The two roof terraces, planted with orange, lemon, grapefruit and pomegranate trees, offer superb, open views onto the snow capped Atlas mountains. Guests are welcome to eat in our 'Café Des Epices'or on one of our roof terraces to make the most of the view.Included in the room rate:• Moroccan/Continental breakfast• Remote controlled air conditioning and heating for the cooler months• Fresh fruit & mineral water• Fresh flowers• "Sens de Marrakesh" toiletries• Babouche - his and hers• Flat screen tv / satellite channels• Nightly turn down service with rose petals• Ipod docking station• Free wifi internet access ... more less
